once you've won, it is different. now you are in this whole dizzy stage of oh, my god, i have this money. i think everybody should play lottery winner right now. think about what you would do right now if you really did win. would you take in a lump summit how would you do it. so in case it happens when are you out of your body, you already have those decisions made. think about how are you going to take that money, yearly or lump sum, and get your professional advisors in place right away. >> the only benefit for the annual payout is you learn how to handle large sums of money. >> the big surprise is the emotional burden that it can create when a lot of money comes into your being. you think it won't be that way. i'm telling you, it very well can be. we always think, oh, if only i had that much money. here's the bottom line, money alone will never, ever, ever

6:39 am
northeast winds at 7 miles per hour. it has been a mild month. the average temperature has been 53.8 degrees. way out of sync with what usually happens. precipitation not the same story. just over 2 inches below normal. we didn't get much snow. this isn't a lot of rain. if we keep up this relatively dry pattern, it is not going to be much. salisbury 52. chestertown 48. westminster 45. frederick 41 degrees right now. our satellite radar combination, that band of showers south of baltimore which is right up here. most of the rain is down to the south. a low in north carolina. also a low in pennsylvania and
6:40 am
west virginia. all this moves to the east today. as you can see, most of the moisture skewed eastward with this. we'll still have rain chances. our sunday weather is out here. then sunday night and morning weather is out in the dakotas and minnesota right now. so that's kind of the game plan. travel wise, it looks like it will be on the eastern seaboard during the day today. the farther west you go, the better the weather gets. scattered showers and thunderstorms. temperatures getting warmer though all across the country. mostly cloudy skies are forecast today. a few showers in the forecast. 55 to 60 the high. so the winds will be picking up this afternoon a little bit. on the open waters of the bay, gusts could be up to 20. so small craft advisories out. insta-weather futurecast shows
6:41 am
rain chances into the eefpk hours. then things dry up. we may develop sun breaks, especially out west of us. it might stay cloudy through part of the night. during the day sunday, we look dry. by sunday evening, the second part of this comes in. sunday night, monday early, we could produce more showers. so the forecast, up and down, up and down. tapers off by late afternoon. it comes back into -- and then tuesday near 70 with a thunderstorm chance by the end of the day. >> john, thank you. a new meter reading program.
